LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) – A former aide to ex-Gov. Mike Huckabee is leaving her job with the Arkansas secretary of state’s office to work as national press secretary for a Minnesota congresswoman’s likely presidential bid.

Alice Stewart submitted her resignation Monday as deputy secretary of state for public affairs. Stewart said she will be working as national press secretary for Michele Bachmann’s presidential campaign.

Secretary of State Mark Martin’s office said she resigned to seek other opportunities.

Bachmann hasn’t formally announced her bid. Stewart said she was in New Hampshire Monday night to help Bachmann during a Republican presidential debate.

Stewart was a spokeswoman for Huckabee as governor and during his unsuccessful presidential bid in 2008. Huckabee announced last month that he would not seek the Republican nomination next year.
